it does not appear to be a robbery. we don'ten. >> reporter: a violent unprovoked crime at a place that was open with customers all around. >> they need to keep security in here, armed security. >> i will probably building a little bit more aware of what's going on around me. >> just seems to be quite frequent that something happens at this rite aid. >> reporter: police didn't say there's a frequency of crime here, but they've been here before for a recent shooting. april 13th a different man walked into the same northeast rite aid and shot the pharmacy manager at the time. the motive? robbery. an arrest was made and the case is closed. the victim, 31-year-old albert mcduffie, survived but just barely. the father of two children left paralyzed. his brother previously spoke with fox 5 and spoke about forgiveness. >> at this time there isn't enough room in our heart and our lives for hate. >> again two employees at the same rite aid shot five months

sensor so sophisticated medical patients can set it off. >> it not only can detect radiation, but it can differentiate between everyday radiation, medical patients from radiation that could be potentially used by a terrorist, somebody willing to do harm against us. >> reporter: in a demonstration sergeant parker and officer chris bore showed how the device will react if it comes in contact with radiation. >> this will be what radiation source comes near the detector. you can see the red lights flashing. it's vibrating in the sergeant's hand and shows the change in the radiation level with this check source. once i move it farther away you'll see the reading has gone down. >> reporter: the devices have been in use now for a few months in the county and have detected more than a few suspicious situations. >> we have had alarms go off and on each case the officers were able to determine the source as not being a threat. >> reporter: but the portable
devices are only used to alert the police. another more sophisticated device is used to analyze the material being detected. >> i can also go to a screen. it will give us an opportunity to identify what the source is. >> reporter: police say this device can download the information that's detected onto a laptop where it can be sent via the internet to lane for further analysis. police plan to use the portable devices when large crowds have gathered like at golf tournaments and fairs. montgomery county police acquired approximately 40 of these portable units through a federal grant. in addition to using them around metro rail stations some have been given to the motor carrier unit to make checks on trucks and other vehicles. in the fox 5 newsroom, i'm paul wagner. tomorrow marks the 11th anniversary of the september 11th attacks. defense secretary leon panetta stopped by the flight 93 memorial in shanksville, pennsylvania today.

it's really it looked like. >> i was at the nats game. we were at the top of 9th and i was watching the fox 5 weather app and said let's go and we went running because we saw the curtain of black coming across. we got on the ground dry but not to the car. those were some violent storms, not to the level of the derecho but left over 100,000 without power and many funnel reports seen over the course of four hours but no confirmation of any touchdown here. i know they saw him a couple in i think prince george's county and also chantilly. they checked out reston and lorton areas and there were no reports of confirmed tornadoes touching down, but you definitely saw some funnels and i definitely saw rotation. here's what we got in the wake of those violent storms, high temperature today of 77 degrees, boston 69, buffalo 70s. they'll see the leaves changing up there real soon. we still have some heat in the middle part of the country but
nothing like the triple digits last week. this is a welcome relief, especially for the middle part of the country that has suffered so terribly with high heat and drought conditions. check out the next two days, 78 degrees tomorrow, beautiful, award winning, 82 degrees wednesday, so a little bit warmer but again hard pressed to find any clouds around during the day tomorrow or wednesday. our satellite and radar picture will show you that we didn't see much in the way of clouds today either, but high pressure which is centered not too far from chicago valley ruling all the weather. you can see a few showers through the rockies. that is about it. i'm going to show you temperatures right now, mostly in the 50s, a couple spots in the 60s. it will drop and drop quickly to the 40s or low 50s, want to check on those low temperatures again because you might not want your window ofs open too wide. you could find -- windows open too wide. you could find the furnace clicking on.
hard to believe we've gone from air conditioning to these cool temperatures in 48 hours, but it is a refreshing change and feels good. 58 degrees is where we'll drop to in the city, under fair skies, upper 40s in the suburbs and another beautiful day tomorrow, sun yes, pleasant, 78 degrees, a little -- sunny, pleasant, 78 degrees, a little below average. temperatures around the region tomorrow, near 70 around leonardtown, 708 degrees in the district, low to mid-70s for our far western and northern suburbs, spectacular day. we only have a couple clouds here and there. swells have been pretty big because of tropical storm leslie racing toward newfoundland about 350 miles away churning up the coast. we also have hurricane michael, not real impressive, but it's still a hurricane and something new the national hurricane center is watching now, this likely will become a tropical storm here either tomorrow or
the next day. this is about 550, if not 600 miles away. we'll have to watch this one. it might get the name nadine. as we head into september, we still find it pretty active in the tropics. that has not developed yet. it's not a depression. futurecast shows high pressure dominating in the east. what these lines of equal pressure do is makes it hard for showers to hold tomorrow. going forward you can see by thursday it's getting a little closer through the ohio valley and a little moisture tying to work its way into the coast, but our fox 5 accuweather seven really gorgeous days for us. we warm up a little bit by thursday and friday into the mid-80s, saturday a few more clouds, sunday a chance of a couple showers, same thing on monday. so a really beautiful stretch of chamber of commerce weather here in d.c. and how about
those nats? it was a great game yesterday. i hope they did well today. here's lindsay's sports report. this is the verizon 4g lte sports desk with lindsay murphy. >> gio gonzalez is a character all the time except maybe when he's on the mound. yesterday he made the rookies dress up in leotards like the u.s. women's gymnastic team. there was some stiff winds blowing at citi field. top of the 3rd nats lead 1-0 on a suzuki solo homer. bryce harper off to straightaway for center field. they cleared the .408 mark. gio in a jam. did you see that pitch? it's a filthy breaking pawls. gio goes six, allow -- ball. gio goes six, allows one. not keeping that one in the park, another two-run shot, his
22nd. nats beat the mets 5-1. gio earns his major league leading 19th victory. >> this couldn't have been done without the defense and offense. a lot of these guys go out there and it feels like they work twice as hard when i'm out there. you appreciate that and realize what's going on. hopefully we'll continue to pile up some more wins. the braves are losing now in the 90 inning. today skins fans are still on cloud 9, but to players it was back to business. nick sundberg is out at least next week and pierre garcon tests his sore foot wednesday. jordan pew has been assigned to replace bernstein. alfred morris was given starting place as running back. he answered the call carrying the ball 28 times for 96 yards with a long of 18. he rushed for two touchdowns and even though the rookie has
used the underdog role as motivation throughout preseason, is he confident in his ability. -- he is confident in his ability. >> i know what type of guy i am and i'm going to get it done no matter. what as long as i can leave it on the field, i'm happy and i'm ecstatic for the team just because we came in this environment, to come out with a win against this caliber of team is great. >> aled for is our starting run -- alford is or starting running pack. we're going to substitute him we had gets tired -- back. we're going to substitute him when he gets tired. what i've seen in preseason and the first game, he will be our starting running back. >> well deserved. coming up the ravens kick off their season on monday night football against the bengals. ♪
